(Florence, Ky.) - Folks will stand up for their second amendment rights in Boone County this coming weekend.
A Day of Resistance rally is planned for Saturday, February 23 from noon to 2:00 p.m. at the Blue Star building, 24 Spiral Drive, in Florence. The event is being sponsored by the Grassroots Tea Party of Boone County.
According to the tea party organization’s Facebook page, the peaceful demonstration is “to show our elected officials that We The People are against the proposed gun laws that pave the way for national disarmament.”
Kentucky Congressman Thomas Massie, Boone County Sheriff Michael Helmig, Kenton County Sheriff Chuck Korzenborn, Campbell County Sheriff Jeff Kidwell, Boone County Constable Joe Kalil, and others will speak at the rally.
The rally is one of many that will take place across the country on Saturday. The movement comes as President Barack Obama has recently spoken about tightening some firearm regulations.
